Google.Protobuf.CodedOutputStream

Encodes and writes protocol message fields.

Summary

This class is generally used by generated code to write appropriate primitives to the stream. It effectively encapsulates the lowest levels of protocol buffer format. Unlike some other implementations, this does not include combined "write tag and value" methods. Generated code knows the exact byte representations of the tags they're going to write, so there's no need to re-encode them each time. Manually-written code calling this class should just call one of the WriteTag overloads before each value.

Repeated fields and map fields are not handled by this class; use RepeatedField and MapField to serialize such fields.

Public functions

CheckNoSpaceLeft

void CheckNoSpaceLeft()

Verifies that SpaceLeft returns zero.

It's common to create a byte array that is exactly big enough to hold a message, then write to it with a CodedOutputStream. Calling CheckNoSpaceLeft after writing verifies that the message was actually as big as expected, which can help bugs.

CodedOutputStream

 CodedOutputStream(
  byte[] flatArray
)

Creates a new CodedOutputStream that writes directly to the given byte array.

If more bytes are written than fit in the array, OutOfSpaceException will be thrown.

CodedOutputStream

 CodedOutputStream(
  Stream output
)

Creates a new CodedOutputStream which write to the given stream, and disposes of that stream when the returned CodedOutputStream is disposed.

Details
Parameters
output
The stream to write to. It will be disposed when the returned CodedOutputStream is disposed.

CodedOutputStream

 CodedOutputStream(
  Stream output,
  int bufferSize
)

Creates a new CodedOutputStream which write to the given stream and uses the specified buffer size.

Details
Parameters
output
The stream to write to. It will be disposed when the returned CodedOutputStream is disposed.
bufferSize
The size of buffer to use internally.

CodedOutputStream

 CodedOutputStream(
  Stream output,
  bool leaveOpen
)

Creates a new CodedOutputStream which write to the given stream.

Details
Parameters
output
The stream to write to.
leaveOpen
If true, output is left open when the returned CodedOutputStream is disposed; if false, the provided stream is disposed as well.

CodedOutputStream

 CodedOutputStream(
  Stream output,
  int bufferSize,
  bool leaveOpen
)

Creates a new CodedOutputStream which write to the given stream and uses the specified buffer size.

Details
Parameters
output
The stream to write to.
bufferSize
The size of buffer to use internally.
leaveOpen
If true, output is left open when the returned CodedOutputStream is disposed; if false, the provided stream is disposed as well.

Dispose

void Dispose()

Flushes any buffered data and optionally closes the underlying stream, if any.

By default, any underlying stream is closed by this method. To configure this behaviour, use a constructor overload with a leaveOpen parameter. If this instance does not have an underlying stream, this method does nothing.

For the sake of efficiency, calling this method does not prevent future write calls - but if a later write ends up writing to a stream which has been disposed, that is likely to fail. It is recommend that you not call any other methods after this.

Flush

void Flush()

Flushes any buffered data to the underlying stream (if there is one).
